    Glass pyramid manipulation

    V1 :



    V2 :



    V3 :



    Original pics :



    And a background.

    I kinda failed with placing the pyramid. I placed it close to some water, so it looks kinda weird. It's kinda fixed in v3.

    I like all three of the edits you've made. The placement over the water does look a little weird, but so does an illuminated pyramid in the middle of a desert next to a shirtless barbaric kilt wearer holding an axe.
    I think it's a super interesting edit. Good job dude.

    Thanks. Yeah, the placement looks weird, I should have fixed that before making cc editing with the two first versions. It is a weird composition indeed, but I randomly found a picture of a barbarian, and then I wanted to make something like this lol.

    The guy doesn't look like he fits, pyramid could use some better placement. The lighting on the pyramid doesn't make sense. What program are you using for this?

    Nice try and all, but you should work on blending and perspective.
    Also, I'm really going to suggest working with high quality stocks. These are just bad quality man.
    I'm saying this because you're already technically going to depreciate the quality somewhat simply by saving it to the internet.
    Even though it's kinda weird, v3 is the most pleasing to look at imo.

    Could you explain why the guy doesn't fit? Yes the pyramid placement is bad, I should have fixed that. The lightning on the pyramid is just to give more attention to the pyramid, but in general there is nothing that makes sense in the pictures, but I like the weirdness. I use Photoshop.

    I liked how I did the perspective of the lights, but it was hard to make the pyramid match the ground since its not a flat ground.
    The quality of the stock photos is pretty bad, there is actually a much better quality of the barbarian but I didn't see that only after I made the picture.

    He looks like he was just pasted there, that's not the effect you seem to want. There are no shadows, or appropriate lighting showing that he is in that scene. You use an obscene light for the pyramid, now you gotta add other aspects of light and of course shadows according to the source of light, and how does it act alongside the global source of light in the scene.

    I just noticed another thing, water is reflective, wouldn't the water be reflecting part of the pyramid? And wouldn't the pyramid be reflecting anything, it looks like a reflective material.

    Photo manipulation is no easy task. I hope I'm helpful, any other questions let me know.
